Got it and it seems to be working pretty good. Guy at work downloaded all the .iso files so I just had to burn em.
Used 'yum' and got gkrellm installed, had a little glitch with my flash plugin and mozilla but a quick search of LQ took care of that...
Just an FYI I was getting the error:
LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/local/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so [libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory]
I created a link in /usr/lib -> ln -s libstdc++.so.5.0.5 libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3
and the Flash plugin works now.
So far so good.
